RainmasterCo select,  install and maintain irrigation systems for home gardens, parks or ornamental horticulture.

Water is essential to plant growth and is often the major limitation to productivity. Irrigation is now playing a more important role in horticulture as well as home gardens than ever before.

Irrigation can enable plants or turf to be grown in a dry climate where it would not otherwise be possible.  It can supplement the existing rainfall and improve growth rates by extending the growth period of the plant, or it can ensure that there is adequate moisture during critical periods when the plant is growing most rapidly. The value of irrigation can vary greatly from year to year depending on the distribution of rainfall during the growth season.

Irrigation at appropriate times can also improve the quality of turf or the general health of garden plants.
